The coming SMOKEstack: rethinking and retooling “multi-cloud”

Reading time: 8mins

This is an excellent article from James Governor (@monkchips) pointing out problems with the current approach to multi-cloud (k8s all the things!) and an insightful way of thinking differently about it. Rather than focusing a tool, he introduces the fun acronym SMOKEstack (Serviceful, Mashable, Open, K(C)composable, Event-driven.) as a way of choosing cloud capabilities. It's still early days to see if SMOKEstack sticks but I really like this different way of thinking about cloud choice.
